Tea is my passion. My Sri Lankan heritage has always been rooted in tea culture.
Being of Sri Lankan heritage, I have always wanted to engrain the presence of Ceylon Tea (Sri Lankan tea) in Canada, a multicultural country.
My vision is to bring tea of uncompromising quality and rich in character. Tea that is fresh, rich in flavour and natural goodness.
My commitment to quality extends far beyond the moment of handpicking two leaves and a bud to being packed fresh at source, moments after picking.
With harvesting, processing and packaging all completed on the Sri Lankan tea estate, I am able to contribute to the economy of my country of birth and ensure that the workers are compensated fairly as I strongly believe that my business is a matter of human service.
Today, my family owned business is able to bring my country's tea, one that is regarded as one of the finest in the world, to Canadian tea lovers everywhere!
How cultivation happens:
Pluckers make a reasonable salary and, on a Fair Trade estate, compensation includes free housing, medical care, childcare and schooling. The literacy rate on the estates is almost 100%.
